La prueba española de la traducción comenzó el domingo pasado e iba buena. La traducción española del servicio de la adoración de 11:00 está disponible ahora. Apenas pida auriculares de los diáconos.

Hey, I leave Sunday (after evening worship) for Tashkent, Uzbekistan. People who want to receive e-newsletters should e-mail me at ryiamm@mac.com

I will be working there in 3 parts.

1) supporting the work of Korean M's at their school (they teach people how to make prosthetics), I'll be teaching ESL.

2) studying Uzbek and Russian (Uzbek is very similar to Turkish, almost as close as Spanish and Portugese. Russian is Russian).

3) Researching, studying and visiting health development projects in the region, looking toward a future career in health development.
